The soundbar for music lovers.
PLAYBAR is the slim, sleek, beautifully-engineered soundbar that delivers great audio for all your movies, TV shows, sports, and games – and wirelessly streams your favourite music, too.
What you see is what you hear.
PLAYBAR features nine speakers designed in a phased speaker array to deliver “directionality”. In plain English that means if there’s a huge crash on the left side of the screen, you’ll hear it there because the speakers on the left are playing the sound and the speakers on the right are playing the inverse of that sound. Crazy, but that’s what it takes to make it sound real.
Great sound, guaranteed.
Trueplay tuning analyzes the room then adjusts your PLAYBAR to deliver the best sound possible. For both music and home theatre.
Attention night owls.
Watching late at night and don’t want to disturb the rest of the house? Turn on Night Sound. At lower volumes, quiet sounds are enhanced and the intensity of loud sounds is reduced.
Two cords. That’s it. One power cord. And one optical cord that connects to your TV. You don’t even have to read a manual because the Sonos app guides you through every step of the setup process. Including connecting PLAYBAR to your WiFi so you can stream your favorite music.
Plays well with others.
Cable boxes. Gaming consoles. Satellite boxes. Blu-Ray players. If it’s connected to your TV,PLAYBAR will play it.
One less remote to worry about.
PLAYBAR works with almost all TV, cable box, and universal remotes by learning their infrared (IR) commands during setup. Which means the remotes you have are all you need. Wherever, however. Place it beneath your TV, on a table or console. Or mount it on the wall. Either way, it looks and sounds beautiful.
Grows to 5.1 with zero drama.
PLAYBAR is just the beginning of the ultimate home theatre experience. Add a Sonos SUB for soul-shaking bass. Want full surround sound? A pair of PLAY:1, PLAY:3 or PLAY:5 speakers will make great rear channels.
Your PLAYBAR needs some company.
PLAYBAR makes movies, sports, TV, games, and music come alive…but just in one room. Add more Sonos speakers to your home and you can listen to what’s playing on your TV in any room. Perfectly synchronized. When you’re done watching, you can listen to all the music you love, all over your home.
